Geography


The River Dee has silted up
they’ll have to use the Mersey.
They’ll have to haul their cargo
to the land of the Blue and Red jersey

The River Dee has silted up
they won’t find another investor.
The business has gone round the Wirral
and forsaken poor old Chester

The River Dee has silted up
they won’t see many more ships.
The sailors now have Scouse accents
and a proper liking for chips.

The River Dee has silted up
no Tars in Chester tavern.
Descendants make their own entertainment
while we hang out in the Cavern.

The River Dee has silted up
and decided history.
And the way things are in the North West
by a quirk of Geography.
